European train booking platform
Hey Community, does somebody know why Interrail isn’t providing a booking platform for train journey in europe? They already have their business partners, so why make it so complicated? I mean there is “thetrainline.com” but even there you actually don’t book your tickets together, when you travel internationally. You always buy seperate tickets together, which has plenty of disadvantages.
struggling understanding seat reservations
First time user. Travelling from Aus to Europe in June. My first train trip will be Paris to Zurich oh June 10. I have logged onto my eurail account and clicked on seat reservations. My pass is first class. It seems to be telling me the seat reservation is over $100 😩. Is that right.
TIRANO - MILANO on june / connections
Good night! 22/06 I’ll take Bernina Express from Chur to Tirano and arribes at 12:49. The same day I hacve to arribe to Venice, and I have a FrecciaRossa from Milan to Mestre at 18:45. Problem is that there will be some railworks and Trenord told me that timetables not will be ok till 11/06.Wich will be the best way to arribe from Tirano to Milano between 13 and 18:30 hours on 22/06? There will be buses from Tirano to Milano or to another station where I can take another train to Milano? This buses will be at Tirano’s station and how to reserve a place at them or buy tickets thankyou so much to all
Can I tell if pass seats are still available on Eurostar
I’m trying to decide between buying point to point or Eurorail --- the most expensive part of the trip is the Eurostar from London to Paris. But I can’t see where I can make sure seats are still available using the pass on the specific day I need to travel. Suggestion?? Thanks!
Trip on first day
Bought my first ever Interrail Pass (Global Pass) today. First trip will be The Hague to Labenne in France. The planner gives a trip with a 5 minute connection time on Rotterdam Centraal (stoptrein to Thalys). So isn't it better to take an earlier train from The Hague to Rotterdam? And can I use that earlier train as an outbound trip?
Refund for Pass
After buying a eurail pass and activating it, I discovered that there were no eurail reservations available on the train I need to take so I would like a refund. However, I can’t ask for a refund because I have started a trip and can’t delete the trip because the website will not let me delete the traveler (me) from it. How do I delete the traveler/trip so I can request a refund?
How to guarantee seats?
Hi,I am new and finding this all very complicated, honestly wishing I had never bought the pass.I have a mobile global first class pass and planning to travel next week.I have read loads of previous questions and have been searching trips, adding them to My Trip and then to My Pass to show tickets.Really appreciate some help to my questions-1) I have read that although I have a ticket, it doesn’t guarantee a seat on the train, for trips with no reservations needed, do I now have to find out the train company and see if I can make reservations?2) My pass shows a bar code for the day with several trips, does that ticket/bar code cover every trip for the day?3) Do all trains have first class carriages? Trips without reservations, do I just look for seats in first class and if none available, go to 2nd class?4) Some trips have a very short transfer to change trains, is there a way of finding out platform numbers before arriving so I don’t miss the train?I am so confused and with only havin

Home country. Does a connection count as an additional outbound journey?
Hello!My home country is the UK. If I buy the global pass, can I travel from Liverpool to Paris, then Paris back to Liverpool?I’m aware there will be a €36 charge for my seat reservation. But, just wanted to check if the above is ok?I seen somewhere that you’re allowed one outbound journey with the global pass. I will be changing at London though, so will Liverpool to Paris count as one outbound journey? Or will it be counted as two (Liverpool → London → Paris).Thanks for your help!
Interrail for residents of Northern Ireland
I live in Northern Ireland. Given that the whole island of Ireland is regarded as a single entity for Interrail purposes does this mean that a Global pass which I buy would be valid for unlimited travel in Great Britain? Similarly, am I able to buy a Great Britain single country pass (as would be the case if I lived in the Republic of Ireland)?

Inquiry into Reservations and their availability
I’m planning on using an Interrail Pass to go from Frankfurt to Béziers this August. My question is, how high my chances are for getting a seat reservation for all of the members of my group, we’re 10 people (!). We’re planning on first going Frankfurt → Paris then Paris → Béziers.Interrail only allows us to book tickets 90 days in advance, I am scared that this may be too late given the busyness of trains to France in August. Does anybody have any experience or tips?Best wishes, Vlad
supplement included in seat reservation from Munich to Verona?
Hello!Apparently there is a supplement required when travelling from Munich to Verona (or between Germany and Italy in general). On this site there is info that says the supplement is included if I book seat reservations through the Eurail self-reservation tool which I did and the price was 10€pp which apparently is exactly the supplement amount. However, there was supposed to be a text “supplement included” printed on the ticket. There is no such text. However it says “ticket + reservation” on the top. So is the supplement now paid or not, does anyone know? Thanks!-Anna
issue with adding journey manually for nightjet
Hello, I have reserved the seats for NJ 402 train from Zurich to Amsterdam but unfortunately that train does not exist in the rail planner app. I can’t add manual journeys since it disappears immediately after I close the app. I can see one journey IC 60402 which is the same train with seating instead of sleeper. Can I add that train and show the barcode to ticket checker and travel in sleeper coach since I reserved that one?please advise if you have any experience since I am traveling soon.
Night train bookable in B-Europe?
This might sound silly... I booked to and from Eurostar tickets last month on b-europe.com and it went perfectly fine… Now I'm trying to book a NJ from Austerlitz to Nice Ville and I just can't seem to remember where I selected the Eurail discount. The only difference is that last time I did it on the laptop and this time I'm using the B Europe app on an Android. But that shouldn't make a difference, right? Right now its only showing the following discount card options:Regards.
Eurail Pass - reservations essential?
I have bought a 7-day Eurail pass for June-July travel in Italy-Switzerland. The pass does not apply to local/regional trains but question I have is when it is stated Reservations are needed - is this just for a seat - or can the Eurail pass still be used e.g. standing room where accepted without that reservation?eg. travel Rome Airport station to Roma Tiburtina on 26 June 2023 Other question isNo seat reservation is available anyway for above travel on Eurail search engine- is this because it is too early being now 16th April trying to book for 26/6/23? I read somewhere timetables become enfixed 2 months in advance?
Combining rail ticket with Interrail Global pass for same journey
Hello everyone,We live in Hamburg, Germany. My wife and I bought two 4 days in 1 month global passes and were planning to use it to travel around Hungary. We used it to go to Budapest but had to cut our journey short and come back. So we used up the outbound/inbound (2 days out of 4). We would like to use the remaining 2 days for a Nordic trip.Since the outbound and inbound are used up, can we book a rail ticket from Hamburg to a Danish border town like Padeborg and from Padeborg switch over to our global passes? Because once we are out of Germany which is our country of residence, we can start using the global pass again.So, we get on the Hamburg to Copenhagen direct train, reserve seats all the way from Hamburg to Copenhagen, but we buy rail tickets only from Hamburg to Padeborg. At Hamburg, we show the ticket checker these rail tickets. Can they then question us about why our seats are reserved until Copenhagen? And then at Padeborg, we start a travel day and then select the same tr
One adult travelling with 2 children under 11 - Seat reservations
Hi, I’m looking at booking a 4 day Interrail pass for me and my children who are 10 and 7. According to website this pass is around £220 and the children don’t need to pay, is this correct? Also the 4 days travel will be one day from London to Barcelona, another day from Barcelona to San Sebastián in Spain, another from San Sebastián to Brive la Gallairde and last day from Brive la Gallairde back to London; are all of these routes available with the Interrail pass? Thank you
